OMG no one mentioned "I DON'T BELIEVE KOBE MISS THE FINGER-ROLL!!!!????" ???

I was stunned man, that can be a very close play of the game if he made it...=/

And technically, Kobe bailed USA out in the 3rd quarter man....

And what's up with the scoreboard....they keep changing the scores and statistics...grrr ;)

And I'm so envious of the Shanghai kids....THEY GET TO GIVE DRINKS TO PLAYERS!!!!! /picture the kid trying to give Bron the drink repeatedly...:lol:

We could say this is the first important team US team faces, a team that has won something not so long ago.
That's good news. :(

Watching the game I noticed a few things

I think Deron Williams is the best PG for the team
Deron, Kobe, and Redd are essential for breaking up the zone - Redd for spacing and the other two because they know how to work through the seams of the zone
I love Chris Paul but his defense is a mess
Melo is a mess defensively (but I'm sure we all knew that :lol: )
Their team defense needs some work
Kobe is most definitely the leader of this team; when the game got tight they made sure to put the ball into Kobe's hands.
They need to practice their free throws.
These announcers work my nerves.

Rick Kamla and whoever will work 1 last game and the Olympics will be 2 different announcers...bear with it.

Yeah previous 3 games, it was quite smooth flowing, even when lithuania was within 9, kobe buckle down the defense and look at what happened?

In this game, it's really a tight game and at russia's pace, it's different from lithuania's case when russia was within 8, and the only player to really came out is Kobe...so he's really IMO the unsung hero on this team.
